Dukan Diet

 READY TO LOSE WEIGHT

 

What is it?

How does it work?

The slimming project has 4 stages: (1) ATTACK: 1 to 10 days of eating nothing but protein (2) CRUISE: Alternate protein days with vegetables (3) CONSOLIDATION: Every day is a mix of protein and vegetables but add a piece of fruit, 2 slices of bread and cheese plus two starchy meals per week and a couple of celebration meal (4) STABILISATION: Eat what you like with one rule eat only protein on Thursdays (for ever).

What can you eat?

Eat what you like after reach the last stage of your slimming project (except Thursday with you can eat only protein).  

Typical example of a day's food choices

A TYPICAL VEGETABLE AND PROTEIN DAY:

Breakfast: Coffee or tea (with skimmed milk and sweetener), either 2 small non-fat yoghurts or 225g (8oz) non-fat cottage cheese and either 1 slice turkey, chicken or low-fat ham, or 1 boiled egg.

Snack: 1 small non-fat yoghurt or (115g or 4oz) non-fat cottage cheese

Lunch: Stuffed mushrooms, three-pepper tuna, café crème

The minus side

 

1) Critics point to the diet’s unsavoury side-effects such as tiredness and loss of strength. You may feel tired, cold or nauseous during the first stage of the diet; this is because your body could be experiencing a “cleansing crisis”, which is when toxins previously stored in fat cells are released into the system in order to be flushed away. These side effects indicate that your body is beginning to eliminate toxins. 2) It has also been compared unfavourably with the Atkins diet because of its heavy focus on protein. Dr. Dukan is quick to dispel the similarities. “Humans eat a diet of protein, carbohydrates and fat and Atkins chose to cut out carbohydrates, focusing on fat and protein, which can lead to high cholesterol,” he says.

Diet Chef

Ready to Lose Weight?

What is it?

Diet Chef is a business based in Scotland that delivers pre-packed calorie counted meals to thousands of customers in the UK and Europe.

How does it work?

a) The company markets itself to consumers as like having your own personal chef who plans your meals, measures out the portions and does all the cooking for you.                                                     
b) You pay a set fee and the company delivers to your door a hamper containing a seven day supply of meals and snacks.
c) There are two daily calorie choices with the meal plans averaging less than 1,200 or 1,500 calories a day: a 1,200 calorie mainly designed for women and a 1,500 calorie version for men or women who are very active - or who have a lot of weight to lose.

What can you eat?

Hampers come with breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks to help with any hunger pangs in between. The food can be stored in a cupboard until needed and then heated on the hob or microwaved. 70 variations to choose from to help prevent boredom and a wide enough variety of food, including vegetarian options, to cover most tastes. In addition to the packaged meals, customers are encouraged to consume an average of two portions of fruit, three portions of vegetables and 500ml of semi-skimmed milk each day for a healthy, balanced diet.

Typical example of a day's food choices

Diet Chef Sample Plan: Breakfast: Original granola, or Strawberry porridge. Lunch:  Sweet potato and coconut soup, or Mixed bean salad. Dinner: Chili con carne, or Mushroom Risotto, or Chicken Jalfrezi. Daily snacks:  Fruit oat biscuits, or Cheese oat bites, or Sweet and salty popcorn

There is some criticism from people who have followed these types of meal replacement plans that small portion sizes mean they are not very sustainable. 2) Having meals delivered to the door that only require a quick spin in the microwave, means there is no opportunity to learn about food and nutrition. 3) Don’t take it if you hate soups!

Weight Watchers

Ready to Lose Weight?

What is it?

Weight Watchers is an American-based international company that offers various dieting products and services to assist weight loss and maintenance. Founded in 1963 by Brooklyn homemaker Jean Nidetch, operates in about 30 countries around the world.

How does it work?

The Weight Watchers program provides a Point System for determining and calculating how many calories you should consume per day in order to restore your optimum weight level. Your assigned Weight Watchers coach determines how many points you are allowed to consume daily. Dieters can check the ProPoints value of foods using a pocket guide that lists hundreds of the most popular foods, an online database of thousands of foods, a mobile phone app, or they can purchase a Pro Points calculator.

What can you eat?

 As long as consumption remains in your predetermined points level any food can be eaten.
Pro Points encourage people to eat a wide variety of healthy foods - split between three meals plus snacks within a personalized calorie level.

Typical example of a day's food choices

You'll get at least 1,200 calories a day. Breakfast:  You can use 500 calories for this meal. 2 cups of bran flakes 2 tablespoons of peanut butter One-half cup of juice. Lunch:  Your lunchtime calories can equal 450 calories 2 slices of beef on your sandwich with a cup of skim milk. 4 tablespoons of fat-free mayonnaise. Dinner: You have 250 calories left.

How to Choose a Weight Loss Programme

 

There are many weight loss programmes available all over the world. Some will promise people overnight weight loss miracles without losing any sweat. Others take clients through strict diets that require one to forego certain meals for a certain period.

It is however, extremely critical that the weight loss programme one chooses is a healthy one, that will not result in undesirable repercussions to the body. One also needs to have clear goals and be fully committed to meeting them. When choosing a healthy weight loss programme, there are critical things that you need to check. Some of the things to look out for include:

   

 1)111The people offering the weight loss programme.

   

Many people out there are offering to coach people on weight loss whose credentials are unknown. Only people who are professionals in this area like nutritionists, dieticians, doctors, and such like people should offer a healthy weight loss programme. Never choose a programme for weight loss if you are unsure of the credentials of those offering it.

The programme for weight loss should be sustainable.

Some weight loss programmes emphasise failure to eat some foods like carbohydrates for extended periods. Much as this may seem successful in the short term, it is not sustainable in the long term because one cannot live on diets.

The problem with diets is that the weight loss during the dieting period is immediately regained, once the person gets back to normal diet. A healthy weight loss programme should emphasise a balanced diet eaten in proper portions.

Emphasis on permanent weight loss is fundamental.

A healthy weight loss programme should combine both diet and exercise. Any programme, which promises weight loss without any exercise at all, may not be healthy in the end. One should also be extremely wary of programmes that promise instant loss of weight. Weight doesn't accumulate overnight, and it doesn't go overnight. It should be a gradual process for it to be permanent.

Support programmes in place.

A healthy weight loss programme should have other support programmes in place for the clients. It is true that it is much easier to win any battle when one has other people walking with and encouraging one to succeed. Support groups of like-minded people are tremendously beneficial in winning this race.

The organisers of the programme should set apart time when people can meet together and share experiences as they encourage each other. Opening a social media group could be a good example of this strategy. In such a group, members can post their experiences and support each other.

The bottom line is that the weight loss programme should offer a healthy way of losing weight and keeping it away for good. One should also consult with their doctor before joining any programme for weight loss. It is critical to be sure, that whatever the programme you choose this should be acceptable to your body. This is especially pertinent if you are on medication or battling a certain disease. Self-discipline and determination are also key issues in securing success with your weight loss programme.
